Housing: Rodents

Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will place in the Library a copy of the background data on rodent presence in domestic properties collected as part of each of the English House Condition Survey reports since 1997. (213540)

I have been asked to reply.

The report on the 1996 data was published in 1999 as: “MAFF (1999) Rodent infestations in domestic properties in England: a report arising from the 1996 English House Condition Survey. Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Crown Copyright 1999. PB 4822”. A copy of this was placed in the House of Commons Library at the time.

The 2001 report is available on the DEFRA website. I will arrange for a copy to be placed in the House of Commons Library.

A further report on 2002-04 will be available soon.
